Perspective on the same

Checking the news this morning, it was interesting to see two different view points of exactly the same data. Why it's important to use the internet to get news from as many different perspectives as possible.

Got a dog? There's an app for that

The applications for iphone are staggering and I am currently seeding my first iphone application - Dogbook. While at first you wouldn't believe there could be an iphone app for your dog, it is actually incredibly useful. You can locate the nearest park anywhere in the world via your location on GPS, you can see what other dogs are nearby should you lose your dog you can send an 'arf' alert to other users within 15km with a photo of the dog so it can be found again. Iphone makes life that little bit easier once more. Download it for free from itunes

Record breaking cocktail genius!

Currently seeding this viral for TGI Fridays featuring some pretty awesome bar tricks - particularly like the flaming sambucca's. It's from Viral Factory who are always very good at making virals that make people have huge debates in the comments section as to which bits are real and which bits are fake. Creates a lot of buzz and 210k views in the first week is not bad at all.

Design and cycling update

The project is going well. I wanted to share the entire process with you, but as soon as I moved to generating concepts I realised that in order to protect my ideas it wouldn't be a good idea to post them on the web. While initially I'm all for sharing ideas, the tangle proof headphones experience gave me a quick introduction to intellectual property and the number one thing I learnt was do not post ideas on the web too early. I am designing a coat for women and I will share the finished product and info on the degree show.

Which means this blog shall now return to talking about design and marketing, with the occasional update on the design and cycling project.
